I've decided to call This Week in Games the Collector's Edition Edition. No, that is not a typo! This week's edition just seems to have a fair amount of collector's/game of the year editions! Oh, and Remember Me? Remember that? Yep, that's actually out this week! Sneaky sneaky...
What is it? It's actually not the generic shooter you'd expect a game called 'Gunpoint' to be! It's a stealth puzzler. Should you care? Early reports have this game pegged as a clever little puzzler with some properly unique mechanics. I'm keen to check it out.
Journey Collector's Edition (PS3)
What is it? Remember that collector's edition with that real swell book? We had no idea when it would be released in Australia but now, totally by surprise, here it is! Should you care? I usually hate special editions, but I'm really interested in that art book. I think I'm going to buy this. Also: it's one of the best games ever made.
Marvel Heroes (PC)
What is it? It's a free-to-play MMO. Should you care? I'm really not sure. It seems loaded with micro transactions and the like.
What is it? I spotted this for sale in EB Games. Minecraft on the 360 is getting a retail release. Should you care? I suspect you have this already. Who doesn't already have Minecraft?
MotoGP 13 (360/PS3)
What is it? The best/only MotoGP sim. Should you care? I always found these games remarkably well made. It's not something I pay that much attention to. Last one I played was in 2008!
Remember Me (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? The latest new IP from Capcom. Mixes in free-running with a handful of other slick looking mechanics. Should you care? I think this is one you should look out for, but maybe wait for our review along with others. After a healthy amount of early hype, this game seems to have lost a bit of buzz and momentum.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? It's the mega-catch-all super edition of Skyrim. Should you care? I know a lot people who actually refuse to buy Bethesda games until the big mega edition is released. This is the one. This is the grandaddy. Yes, you should care. I loved Skyrim. I miss the world. Thinking about picking this up myself.
